A recent poll by The BBC Asian Network Radio suggests that just 44% of British Asians are like to vote in the Election on Thursday 6th May. This is obviously not an impressive statistic. How does this make you feel?
What I am been saying in every single interview that I have been doing is that people, not just Asians, need to go out and vote. In the European Union elections last year people didn’t go out and vote and as a result we now have two MEPs from the British Nationalist Party. This is an important election of our generation. People need to go to the ballet box and vote.
